Routine rocks, but sometimes you need to go off the meal-grid and go wild. Break out the food coloring and make some crazy rainbow pasta so cool even the grownups will fight over who’s going to Instagram it first.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Cook your pasta al dente according to package instructions.

  • Dilute 20 drops of food coloring in 2 Tbs. of water and add to a large Ziploc bag. Repeat for as many colors as you want.

  • Drain pasta and divide among the bags.

  • Distribute color by gently shaking bags. (A killer Katy Perry dance track is optional for this step, but highly recommended.)

  • One color at a time, transfer pasta back into colander to remove excess liquid.

  • Toss all the colors together and poof! Deliciously crazy dinner is served.

  • Grab your phone and shoot fast.
